Reviews for the HP G62-225nr

70% HP G62-225nr
Source: PC Mag English
The HP G62-225nr ($579.98 list) is a mainstream, budget laptop that should serve the needs of a wide range of users—as long as speedy performance isn't a prerequisite. Available at Staples, there's actually not much to make the HP G62-225nr stand out from other 15.6-inch laptops; but that doesn't mean you should overlook it. Not only are you going to have a hard time beating its affordable price tag, but very good battery life and a smudge-resistant design should appeal to frequent travelers.

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500MHD: Onboard (shared Memory) GPU built in the GM45, GE45 and GS45 chipset (Montevina). Because of two more shaders and a higher core clock, much faster than the old GMA X3100. Still not advisable for gamers (DirectX 10 games not playable or only with very low settings). The integrated video processor is able to help decode HD videos (AVC/VC-2/MPEG2) , e.g., for a fluent Blu-Ray playback with slow CPUs.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

Intel Pentium Dual Core: The return of the name Pentium, though it is a Yonah core. In fact, it is a double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption.


T4500:

Entry to middle class dual core CPU with 1 MB level 2 cache and no virtualization technology. Compared to the Core 2 Duo line, some power saving mechanism are deactivated.

15.6":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

2.5 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
